Summary, etc.:
While on a post-graduation Mediterranean cruise with her family, Lenore Bennett meets a hopeless romantic with a ten-year plan who helps her find something she's been looking for--love.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2021 December #2
    This spin-off of Bryant's debut (Happily Ever Afters, 2021) picks up with Tessa's best friend, Lenore. As college looms, Lenore grows apprehensive about being away from her friends. To make matters worse, her family is about to spend part of the summer on an Italian cruise. Unlike Tessa, Lenore isn't one to believe in fairy-tale love stories, and she has no plans for an amorous endeavor—but when she meets Alex on the cruise, and he ropes her into a fake dating scheme, she's thrown into a romantic summer adventure that not even her romance-novelist best friend could dream up. This summer romance seamlessly packs vacation fun alongside serious discussions of race and mental health—Lenore feels added levels of pressure as a high-achieving Black student. Bryant's charming story is bolstered by an irresistible setting and the occasional pop-culture reference. Supportive relationships, even in unexpected places, and flawed characters coming into their own make this novel especially compelling. With its twists on beloved tropes, this a clear pick for fans of Sandhya Menon and Stephanie Perkins. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
